Three species of lecithodendriid-like flukes (families Lecithodendriidae and Phaneropsolidae) are known to infect humans. They include Caprimolgorchis molenkampi (syn. Prosthodendrium molenkampi) which belongs to the Lecithodendriidae, and Phaneropsolus bonnei and Phaneropsolus spinicirrus which belong to the Phaneropsolidae. Human infections are common in C. molenkampi and P. bonnei but rare in P. spinicirrus. The major source of human infections with these flukes is presumed to be aquatic… Expand

Comparative studies on the morphology of the eggs of Opisthorchis viverrini and lecithodendriid trematodes.
TLDR
All forms of lecithodendriid eggs can be differentiated from those of O. viverrini by a set of morphological features of the shell surface, the knob, the operculum, the shoulder, the shape and size. Expand
Mixed infections with Opisthorchis viverrini and intestinal flukes in residents of Vientiane Municipality and Saravane Province in Laos
TLDR
The results indicate that O. viverrini and several species of heterophyid and lecithodendriid flukes are endemic in these two riverside localities, and suggest that the intensity of infection and the relative proportion of fluke species vary by locality along the Mekong River basin. Expand
Foodborne intestinal flukes in Southeast Asia.
TLDR
The host-parasite relationships have been studied in Metagonimus yokogawai, Echinostoma hortense, Fasciolopsis buski, Neodiplostomum seoulense, and Gymnophalloides seoi; however, the pathogenicity of each parasite species and host mucosal defense mechanisms are yet poorly understood. Expand
